Transfer student from St. Clair College. Graduated with BArch.

Architecture is a dynamic field involving the design and production of buildings and spaces that are inspiring, functional, sustainable, and responsive to their physical and social contexts.

Lawrence Technological University’s architecture program, among the largest in North America, can competitively position you for a career in the field of architecture or such allied disciplines as urban design, development, or construction management.

The Bachelor of Science in Architecture prepares you for a career in the field of architecture and leads to the Master of Architecture program, which is accredited by the National Architectural Accrediting Board. At Lawrence Tech you will begin your architectural studies from day one. At other schools design studios come much later in the curriculum. The University’s signature theory and practice approach to learning emphasizes real-world, hands-on experience to better enable you to assume positions of leadership and responsibility.
The architectural curriculum is built uniquely around integrated design studios in which you will work with interdisciplinary faculty teams that include architects, landscape architects, and interior, lighting, and urban designers. As practicing professionals, the faculty provide mentorship in creating your own professional network. Involvement on campus in the American Institute of Architecture Students (AIAS) and the local chapter of the American Institute of Architects (AIA) will give you access to industry professionals and provide opportunities to serve on local and national committees.
